I really liked this hotel. I requested a room at the back due to previous reviews saying that the road was loud, and even though the hotel was fully booked the staff accommodated my request. Best things about the hotel / room: hotel is very nice in appearance and tidy/quiet, breakfast room is lovely and offers great food (with good...

Good things first: nice interior and clean, good location within a walking distance to the city centre (also a regular bus service). Infortunately the room was very noisy, no sound insulation (Banbury Road is very busy), I could understand every word my Asian and American neighbours said in their rooms-including the accents. But the worst thing was the lady at...

We were warmly welcomed by Joyce who provided us with all the necessary information.The room was ok but rather small which became annoying after a few days. Breakfast was nice, the location very good with the busstop right in front of the hotel - Hygiene was ok but our room somehow was rather damp which caused an unpleasant smell.

I had a lovely welcome and was given relevant information. Beautiful décor and spotlessly clean. Wonderful room right at the top of the hotel, luxurious and very quiet. Free Wi-Fi in all the rooms and an excellent breakfast served in a delightful conservatory dining room. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone, one of the best I've ever stayed...

I booked this hotel well in advance for a meeting in Oxford. When I booked, I specifically requested a quiet room not overlooking the street. My room overlooks a very busy street, and the street noise is terrible (including frequent sirens). It is very hot in the room, so I need to keep the window open a little, which makes...

A comfortable and quiet room, as requested. Good breakfast. However, during my two-day stay, I never saw anyone behind Reception. Not a major problem, but I did wonder what would happen if there were any guest emergencies.

Easy to locate, plenty of public transport. Only about 25 minute walk to Oxford. Rooms are small but very clean and nice towels and linens. Breakfast is self service but staff on hand to help and breakfast room is bright and opens to a garden.

Stayed here for 1 night. Allocated room 308. Check in was ok but a little slow. Room on second floor. Room small overlooking the road. Nice large bed, beautiful bathroom with lovely shower, although space was tight in bathroom. No noise from road. Bus stop tight outside hotel with buses every 10 mins.
